A Woman’s Place is Everywhere: Groundbreaking Women in Ames History currently features women in government and is on display in the museum’s Douglas Avenue windows through September 30, 2021. This exhibit tells the story of local women who stepped out of their expected roles and made an impact in the community. This is a four-part series of displays honoring women who broke barriers in science, business, activism, and government, including Ada Hayden, Rowena Stevens, and Helen LeBaron Hilton. The exhibition is supported by the Ames Convention & Visitors Bureau Community Grant Program.
